You Do Not Tear Down Landmarks
Music Story  February 4, 1999, by Raoul Hernandez
"...photograph by John Carrico Walk down just about any street in downtown Austin, particularly along Sixth Street, and you'll find a great many plaques calling your attention to certified Lone Star landmarks. All relate their own slice of local history, the same tales they've told for decades now and will continue to relate for generations to come..."

Landmarks: Enhancing Campus With Art
UT gets 28 large sculptures on long-term loan from the Metropolitan Museum
Arts Story  August 15, 2008, by Robert Faires
"...Seems the university decided a few years ago that it was time to have a real policy regarding the collection and display of public art on campus, and so engaged Peter Walker Partners, the architectural firm behind the Speedway and East Mall renovation, to develop a Public Art Master Plan that would guide the acquisition and placement of public art in coordination with the Campus Master Plan created by Cesar Pelli & Associates 12 years ago. Out of that effort has come Landmarks, as the public art program is called, and its first big project is the long-term loan from the Met, which was initiated by Landmarks founding director Andrée Bober..."

Landmarks Debuts Michael Ray Charles Sculpture at UT
For his Landmarks art commission, Michael Ray Charles transforms crutches into stars
Arts Story  October 8, 2015, by Robert Faires
"...Michael Ray Charles – you may remember him as a professor in the University of Texas art department for a couple of decades – has been considering the crutch quite a lot lately. It's the object at the heart of his new work commissioned from Landmarks, the UT-Austin public art program..."

Pay tribute to old Austin with a visit to one of these 19 landmark restaurants
Food Story  September 12, 2008, by Virginia B. Wood
"...Austin can boast more than 20 food-related businesses that have been in (almost) continuous operation for 50 to 140 years and 80 more that have flourished from 25 to 49 years (see "Landmark Eateries"). Turns out there are still plenty of culinary landmarks on the local menu, and your beloved touchstone could just be among them...."

UT's Public Arts Program Debuts an Ambitious New Project
Landmarks presents Ann Hamilton’s O N E E V E R Y O N E at the Dell Medical School
Arts Story  January 26, 2017, by Robert Faires
"...Just as touch is integral to any health care experience – from the nurse's hand against your forehead feeling for a fever to the surgeon's handling of a transplanted heart – touch is key to the experience of these portraits: It's where the images find clarity. Hamilton, a MacArthur Fellow and National Medal of Arts recipient, came to understand how a depiction of touch in art could reflect the importance of touch in medicine when she was commissioned by Landmarks, UT's exemplary public art program, to create a project for the new medical school complex...."

UT: Major Arts Commissions Announced
Landmarks will get new mural, CoFA a Spanish-language opera
DAILY Arts  August 4, 2017, by Robert Faires
"...This time of year, most talk about the University of Texas concerns the football team, but the arts may generate some chatter this week with the news of two major commissions: from public art program Landmarks, a massive mural by José Parlá and from the College of Fine Arts, an opera about Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera...."

Indignation
Philip Roth's 2008 novel is hauntingly translated to the screen

Film Review  August 12, 2016, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Schamus, a longtime producer and screenwriter of many indie-film landmarks (especially those directed by Ang Lee, and the early films by Todd Haynes) directs his first feature film with Indignation. He shows a steady hand, yet the film nevertheless feels cautious and underplayed..."

One Day
This gimmicky romantic drama charts 20 years of one British couple's ups and downs in one-day blips.
starstarstar
Film Review  August 19, 2011, by Kimberley Jones
"...Emma – nerdy and socially conscious in an abstract, petition-writing way – nervously strips down and puts on Tracy Chapman for make-out mood music; put off, the posh, glib Dex shrinks back: "Maybe we can just be friends." It's a wonder their story doesn't end there. Yet they soldier on as just that, lifelong friends who fumble – sometimes together, sometimes not – through the newly adult landmarks of first jobs and failed love affairs..."

The Sorcerer's Apprentice
Nicolas Cage plays a master sorcerer who selects a seemingly average guy to become his protégé and save New York City from his arch-nemesis.

Film Review  July 16, 2010, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Years later, Dave (Baruchel) has grown up into an NYU physics nerd and reunites with Balthazar, who gives him a crash course in sorcery spells (which seem to take much less time to master than a physics degree). Filmed in New York, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice makes good use of some city landmarks, though, on a more mystical plane, the film’s magic tricks do little to dazzle the eye..."

New York, I Love You
The central thesis in this ominibus of short films is that New York is not its landmarks or its landscape; New York is its people.

Film Review  November 6, 2009, by Kimberley Jones
"...Starring: Orlando Bloom, James Caan, Hayden Christensen, Blake Lively, Julie Christie, Bradley Cooper, Chris Cooper, Drea de Matteo, Ethan Hawke, John Hurt, Irfan Khan, Shia LaBeouf, Cloris Leachman, Rachel Bilson, Christina Ricci, Olivia Thirlby, Eli Wallach, Robin Wright Penn, Anton Yelchin and Burt Young. The central thesis in this omnibus of short films (spun off from Emmanuel Benbihy and Tristan Carné’s compilation film Paris, Je T’aime) seems to be that New York is not its landmarks or its landscape; New York is its people..."

Humpday
Shelton’s winner of Sundance’s Special Jury Prize starts an interesting conversation about sexuality, but ultimately doesn't add much to the dialogue.

Film Review  September 4, 2009, by Kimberley Jones
"...Starring: Mark Duplass, Joshua Leonard, Alycia Delmore, Shelton and Trina Willard. Ben (Duplass), a Seattle newlywed, seems to be contentedly motoring along life’s major landmarks – marriage, property, prepping for children – but that contentment, or its illusion, is shattered when Ben’s old college buddy Andrew (Leonard) shows up unannounced at his front door..."

Film Review  February 6, 1998, by Russell Smith
"...Bet it didn't take 'em long to realize how gravely mistaken they were. Apart from the presence of pug-faced superstar Chow Yun-Fat, there's not much here that truly recalls producer Woo's late Eighties and early Nineties action landmarks such as A Better Tomorrow I and II, The Killer, and Hard-Boiled..."

Jack
By virtually anyone's standards, Jack – a listless family comedy and bland morality primer – would be a one-star movie, the kind of thing that's designed to make you laugh...

Film Review  August 9, 1996, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...By virtually anyone's standards, Jack – a listless family comedy and bland morality primer – would be a one-star movie, the kind of thing that's designed to make you laugh and make you cry, but leave no nasty tear-stain residue. But when Francis Ford Coppola – the director responsible for such cinematic landmarks as Apocalypse Now and The Godfather – stoops to such syrupy swill, for me that single star drops down to a full-fledged bomb..."

Film Review  July 12, 1996, by Marc Savlov
"...And, like Earthquake (or The Towering Inferno, for that matter), this conspiracy buffs' take on Close Encounters is a sure-fire summer blockbuster, in Sensurround or otherwise. Never mind that once you get past the admittedly breathtaking shots of our national landmarks being turned into kindling, the rest of the film is a tired and empty two hours of feel-good patriotism and oddly cast characters: This curiously unaffecting film has already reset the box-office high-water mark for the next 10 years..."

Shameless

Film Review  June 4, 1993, by Marc Savlov
"...It may be a cliché to say it, but Shameless is shamelessly an “Austin” film. Apart from the readily identifiable Austin landmarks scattered throughout, Byington has lifted the film's tone seemingly straight off the city's streets..."

By Any Other Name
The history of Austin's cherished landmarks reveals the extent to which chance plays a part in who among their namesakes we remember and which fade with time.

Crumbling Landmarks
News Story  April 15, 1999
"...Texas is known for its historical landmarks, yet many of the treasures are in danger of turning to dust before our eyes. The limestone facade of the towering obelisk at the San Jacinto Battlefield was crumbling in the coastal air outside of Houston until the Legislature provided the department with $10 million in emergency funding in 1995..."

The Way It Is and Isn't
Ben Rubin's art installation at UT shows the gap between TV news in Cronkite's time and now
Arts Story  September 7, 2012, by Robert Faires
"...Interestingly, the Rubin project did not initially involve Cronkite. The commission from UT's Landmarks public art program was to create a work for a site in the College of Communication complex, and it was only after the school chose to name the plaza in memory of its onetime journalism student (1933-35) that Rubin and his collaborators – statistician Mark Hansen and Jer Thorp, data artist in residence at the New York Times – brought Cronkite into the mix..."

The Dickinson-Hannig House looks for a home
News Story  November 23, 2001, by Lauri Apple
"...But where the house (named after Alamo survivor Susanna Dickinson and her fifth husband, furniture maker Joseph Hannig) will finally reside -- and when -- is anyone's guess. Since the house relinquished its 130-year post at Fifth and Neches to the Convention Center hotel-in-progress, the City Council, Historic Landmarks Commission, and Parks Board have approved its removal to a sliver of land deeded to the city by the state at 10th and Congress..."

Silent Partner
You don't hear much about Wayne Bell when the Long Center for the Performing Arts is discussed. That may be because this honored Austin architect is low-key, modest, the consummate team player. But he's the point man on this $60 million project and arts writer Robi Polgar reveals how integral he is in getting it built in a calm, orderly, informed, and successful way.
Arts Story  October 15, 1999, by Robi Polgar
"...In more than 30 years of working in and around Austin as both a professional and an educator, architect Wayne Bell has quietly amassed a portfolio of firsts: first state restoration architect with the Texas Historical Commission; first chairman of the Historic Landmarks Commission; first director of the Winedale historical site, where he led the Winedale Preservation Institute; founder of the Historic Sites and Restoration branch of the Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife; initiator of the master's degree program in historical preservation at the UT School of Architecture. With such a roster of achievements to his credit, you'd think Bell would be a more recognizable figure on the public scene -- one of the city's high-profile architects, like his colleague and friend Sinclair Black..."

The Ottoman Lieutenant
Corny romance set during the Armenian Genocide

Film Review  March 10, 2017, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Filmed in Turkey and the Czech Republic, The Ottoman Lieutenant plays like another silly Western romance that emphasizes the area’s natural beauty and historic landmarks (Mt. Ararat, among other sites) and marginalizes the native actors, who all perform in supporting roles..."
